This week's deal post goes hand in hand with our news story about the memory industry today. Memory prices have been dropping throughout this year, and they hit an all-year low in the first half of this month with 512Mb DDR2 memory chips selling for only $1.31 a pop in the contract market (that's down from $5.88 per chip in early January). It's now easy to nab 2GB memory kits for around $50. Instead of bringing you a single memory deal, though, we've picked out three:
- Corsair's 2GB DDR2-667 Value Select memory kit, which costs $49.99 at Newegg
- Wintec's 2GB DDR2-800 Ampo memory kit, which is $5 more at Newegg ($54.99).
- Mushkin's 2GB DDR2-800 Enhanced memory kit, which Newegg offers for $61.99 with a $10 mail-in rebate that can bring its price down to just $51.99—a nicer deal than the Wintec kit if you don't mind mail-in rebates.
All three kits are covered by a lifetime warranty, and their manufacturers all offer U.S.-based technical support should things go awry.
